From a quick search it looks like your 5620 has a gigabit capable network chipset but only a 100Mbit capable transceiver (actual network hardware interface) so there is no software solution.  The Wifi chipset is only good for 54Mbit/s (max theoretical).

To get better performance you could try using a gigabit USB network interface into one of the USB 2 ports - you won't get full gigabit speeds but probably somewhere about what you were getting with your Lenovo.  A TP-Link UE-300 has worked well for me in both USB 3 and USB 2 ports with Lite 4.x and 5.x.

I would imagine 100 MBPS would be adequate for that as long as you have a decent modem/router that support that speed. I have 150 MBPS with a three person household and our internet never really bogs down unless I am doing a lot of downloading (torrents, updates to VMs & servers, etc)
